Lateral Cooking: One Dish Leads to Another
Lateral Cooking
One Dish Leads to Another
Hardcover      ISBN: 1635572649

A groundbreaking handbook--the method companion to its critically acclaimed predecessor, The Flavor Thesaurus--with a foreword by Yotam Ottolenghi.

Niki Segnit used to follow recipes to the letter, even when she'd made a dish a dozen times. But as she tested the combinations that informed The Flavor Thesaurus, she detected the basic rubrics that underpinned most recipes. Lateral Cooking offers these formulas, which, once readers are familiar with them, will prove infinitely adaptable.

The book is divided into twelve chapters, each covering a basic culinary category, such as Bread, Stock, Soup & Stew, or Sauce. The recipes in each chapter are arranged on a continuum, passing from one to another with just a tweak or two to the method or ingredients. Once you've got the hang of flatbreads, for instance, then its neighboring dishes (crackers, soda bread, scones) will involve the easiest and most intuitive adjustments. The result is greater creativity in the kitchen: Lateral Cooking encourages improvisation, resourcefulness, and, ultimately, the knowledge and confidence to cook by heart.

Lateral Cooking is a practical book, but, like The Flavor Thesaurus, it's also a highly enjoyable read, drawing widely on culinary science, history, ideas from professional kitchens, observations by renowned food writers, and Segnit's personal recollections. Entertaining, opinionated, and inspirational, with a handsome three-color design, Lateral Cooking will have you torn between donning your apron and settling back in a comfortable chair.

"A fashionably photographed book that's as high-rolling and unapologetically carnivorous as the Beatrice Inn]."--The New York Times Book Review

IACP AWARD FINALIST - NAMED ONE OF THE BEST COOKBOOKS OF THE YEAR BY THE NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW

The Beatrice Inn's presence in New York City spans close to a century, and its history is ever changing, from one of New York's first speakeasies, frequented by Fitzgerald and Hemingway, to a beloved neighborhood Italian restaurant to one of the city's most notorious night clubs. Angie Mar purchased the Beatrice Inn in 2016 and led the storied landmark into its next chapter. Mar transformed the space and the menu into a stunning subterranean den where guests are meant to throw caution to the wind and engage in their most primal of senses. Pete Wells, in his rave two-star New York Times review, summed it up best: "It is a place to go when you want to celebrate your life as an animal."

Now, in Mar's debut cookbook, the Beatrice Inn experience will resonate with readers no matter where they live. Butcher and Beast invites readers into this glamorous, gutsy, and forever-nocturnal world. Mar's unconventional approach to flavor profiles are captured in over 80 recipes, including Milk-Braised Pork Shoulder, Duck and Foie Gras Pie, Venison Cassoulet, and Bone Marrow-Bourbon Cr me Br l e. Throughout are also essays on Mar's controversial and cutting-edge dry-aging techniques, her adoration of Champagne, the reality of what it takes to lead in the New York City restaurant scene, and the love and loyalty of her tight-knit family. Visually arresting photography shot entirely on Polaroid film captures the elegant and ever-opulent world of the Beatrice Inn.

Have you ever felt guilty throwing out food? Of course, you have, but that's all about to change. The stuff you always thought of as trash just became the main course. Look into the fridge. At first glance it might not look like there's much to eat, just a mishmash of ingredients that don't go together. But carrot tops can be pesto and brown bananas are the start of an incredible cake. Suddenly you have uncovered an undiscovered treasure chest for making the most out of nothing.

Joel Gamoran dives into the kitchen, changing expectations, not just about how to use all ingredients to their max, but how to make the most of every resource in your kitchen. Flip over that cast-iron skillet for a stellar pizza stone. Don't throw away those apple cores, shrimp shells, or leftover pickle juice. Transform them into gorgeous meals, such as Apple Core Butter Roasted Duck, Shrimp Shell Chowder, or Pickle Juice Brined Pork Chops.

Think outside of the recipe box--learn to be creative when it comes to making food. Resourcefulness is an essential part of cooking; Gamoran's experiences in culinary schools and as a professional chef have taught him that everything in the kitchen can, and should, be used. His relaxed laid-back tone tackles a serious subject. It embraces a lifestyle that eliminates waste, helps the environment, and enables home cooks to stretch their food budgets.

Cooking Scrappy saves you money, helps to save the planet, and ups your cooking game. Joel stands for the bruised, the forgotten, and the back of the fridge. Will you stand with him?

Four Seasons of Home Cooking
Hardcover      ISBN: 0847863182
A dazzling tribute to Italy's greatest "hidden" regional cuisine by the author of the bestselling and groundbreaking cookbook Polpo

Returning to the city of his gastronomic inspiration, Norman Russell immerses himself in the authentic recipes and culinary traditions of Venice and the Veneto in one hundred recipes showcasing the simple but exquisite flavors of La Serenissima. He documents one magical year learning and fine-tuning the specialties and everyday comfort foods of la cucina veneziana in a rustic kitchen in a neighborhood far from the tourist crowds -- where washing hangs across the narrow streets and some houses still rely on a communal well for water.
Russell lovingly reproduces true Venetian recipes with authentic ingredients very different from the globalized tourist fare in the city's restaurants. The book is structured by season highlighting the ever-changing produce available in Venice's buzzing market stalls throughout the year. Included are Venetian favorites such as asparagus with Parmesan and anchovy butter, butternut risotto, arancini, rabbit cacciatore, warm duck salad with walnuts and beets, scallops with lemon and peppermint, and warm octopus salad.
Russell also affords a rare and intimate glimpse into Venice: its hidden architectural gems, secret places, embedded history, the color and energy of daily life and the characters that make this city so enchanting
Evergreen

Hardcover      ISBN: 1908337508

'Evergreen' symbolizes something that will last for years and never goes out of fashion. More and more people are focusing on eating green in their daily lives and Mikkel introduces vegetable recipes to inspire. What makes vegetables exciting is that they really change character and taste according to the seasons. In summer a carrot should be pulled from the ground, lightly rinsed and eaten as it is - completely spicy, tender, crisp and juicy. While in late Autumn, when it has been in the ground for a long while enduring weather and wind, and has become big, coarse but sweet in taste, it should be used in a delicious soup, pur e or baked to enhance the wonderful sweetness it has developed. Photographed by Anders Schoennemann as the seasons have move on and new vegetables become ready to harvest, the daylight changes as the long, bright summer evenings became clear autumn days. They enjoyed the most beautiful sunrises, the tranquility of frosty ice-cold mornings, and often the day's first meal was cooked over fire. Mikkel has managed to make easy, tasty and beautiful vegetable dishes that will make the most carnivorous to appreciate a green meal.
